This is made out of the best quality chocolate on Earth, it is molded into a Fabergé egg shape and it is served on champagne jelly. But it is the edible golden leaf that makes this dish outrageously expensive.
Caviars are known to be rare, but Almas caviar is a food item from Iran which is extremely rare, which explains the ridiculously luxurious price. If you can’t afford the dish, you can taste a slice for $1,250.
